I am part of the Connect for Good Community because I strongly believethat the fortunate shouldn't forget the not so fortunate members of ourcommunities and support them as good as we can. The organization I wouldnominate as deserving your support is Helping Hand of Hope in Hardin CountyKentucky. I have been a volunteer at this organization and was able to see whatpositive impact it has on the poorest in our community. They provide food andclothes and help with overdue rent and utility bills. Depending on available donations they also provide people with furniture.
Their employees and volunteers arevery companionate about what they are doing; and there is nothing greater thanseeing the relief in the receiver's eyes knowing that they and their familieswill make it through another period without hunger, or the fear of gettingevicted. This organization who mainly works with volunteers contributesimmensely to making the lives of the poorest here better. They give HOPE!
